ORPHANAGE DIVESTMENT RESOURCES FOR THE TRAVEL AND VOLUNTEERING SECTORS

New resource to help those in the travel and volunteering sectors responsibly divest from relationships with orphanages.

Landmark moment as the UN calls for the end of orphanages.

On the 18 December 2019, for the first time ever, all 193 member states of the United Nations have formally recognised that orphanages don’t protect children, they harm them, and have called for the progressive elimination of institutional care globally.
